Based in Hickory, North Carolina, Main Line Brands was founded in 2020 as a parent company for leading home service franchises Mosquito Authority, Pest Authority, and newly acquired Fitness Machine Technicians.
Susquehanna Private Capital (SPC) made an investment in the Main Line Brands company in October 2020. As one of the world’s largest privately held financial services firms, Main Line Brands benefits from SPC’s experience with changing consumer preferences, increased business model complexity, and outsourcing trends.
Main Line Brands currently operates more than 850 franchise territories nationally across our three brands.
“We made the commitment to invest in a franchise without the complete understanding of what was required to build a successful mosquito control business. We loved the concept of the service and felt we could deliver great value to our future customers. Frankly, we’ve worked very hard to build this into a successful business- and don’t want to give the impression that that a new franchisee can become an overnight success. However, if you asked us if we had the chance to do it over - would we make the investment again - our answer is yes - absolutely! We are at 1100 customers and building; the tools, systems, marketing and support from HQ have leveled up every year. Because of those tools, systems and support, we can easily service our current customers and easily manage continued growth. It's been incredibly rewarding to see our business thrive and look forward to the future!”
